      As promise, here are the pics from my shoot last night

      First off, what I did to get my car's rear to sit oh so niice!

      Trimmed a total of 1/2 inch of my Dcup brackets:



      Then I switch my rear bags from SS RE5s (left) to AH2s (right):



      For now this is my current stance:





















      Thanks for looking!

      Any more shots of the trunk setup? Looking to see how much it was raised.

      Also did you powder coat your d cups?

      For the false floor, I used 6x1 pieces to raise it to fit the air management and to expose the air tank a little. Since then I recently re did my trunk to add a speaker box still using the space I had under the false floor. So if u still want to make use of your trunk and keep everything nice n tidy while hidden, 6x1 boards for the false floor frame would be perfect. And as for my d cups, I just used some all weather metal spray paint to paint them. It works good and it prevents them from rusting hard core.

      What my trunk originally looked like under my false floor:



      Test fitting the new back pieces and sub box:



      Behind the back seat:



      The sub in the the box all wrapped up:



      What it looks like now:









      Hope that helps
